america do anything or does america keep out of this? >> we're not at that point yet. the united states of america, by the way, has also given an absolutely clear and firm statement on this, that iran with a nuclear weapon is unacceptable, and by the way, i'm quite sure president obama when he says that, he means it and intends to stand by it. i think america is also giving a very strong message to iran, but everybody wants to resolve this without a conflict because that is sensible and the best way of doing it, because the consequences of any conflict would be very serious, profoundly unpredictable. >> let's see what bjamin netanyahu today. he had this extraordinary chart he produced which was very effective. take a look. >> so how much enriched uranium do you need for a bomb? and how close is iran to getting it. let me show you. brought a diagram for you. here's the diagram. >> there was the diagram. he went on to show where the red line was. he basically said look, the process and speed of the enriching of uranium going on in iran, they could have a nuclear bomb ready to use by next
